After a whirlwind few days of sorting pounds and pounds of food, packing 27 resupply boxes, wrapping up our lives in Eugene, and saying goodbye to friends and family… the moment has arrived. We’re leaving today to drive up to Portland, then will fly to San Diego tomorrow morning and start hiking! This post will be a short one, as I still have a last-minute to-do list calling my name, but I wanted to get something down on paper (or keyboard) to commemorate the beginning of our trip and give you all our blog address. I hope to be fairly consistent about posting over the next 5 months so that we can stay in touch with all you lovely friends and family members.
I really can’t believe we’re about to do this. It feels like a big abstract thing that I’ve been talking, thinking, and telling people about like a broken record for the past few months, yet I really have no idea what it will be like. It will be an adventure, and I look forward to sharing it via this blog over the coming months. THANK YOU to all the family, friends, and coworkers who have helped us prepare and offered their support. We couldn’t have done it without you. Must go find a watch battery now… more soon!
